Will They Change the Doctrine and Face of the Church of God?
“Nothing will be the same” in the Church after the Synod on the Amazon, stated Most Rev. Franz-Josef Overbeck, a pro-homosexual bishop in Germany (LifeSiteNews, May 3, 2019).
The “pro-homosexual German bishop has predicted that sweeping changes to the Catholic Church regarding sexual morality, the male priesthood, and priestly celibacy will follow the next Vatican-run meeting of bishops planned for later this year.”
Will “nothing be same as it was”? Will the Amazon Synod lead to a “break”?
LifeSiteNews continues: “According to Katholische.de, the official website of the German Catholic Bishops, Bishop Franz-Josef Overbeck, the ordinary of Germany’s Essen diocese, told reporters that the October Synod in Rome will lead to a ‘break’ in the Church and that ‘nothing will be the same as it was’.”
Hierarchy and traditional sexual morality versus homosexuality, ecology, human rights
Bishop Overbeck said that the hierarchical structure of the Church, her sexual morality and the general image of a priest (“Priesterbild”) would be scrutinized and the role of women in the Church would be reconsidered.
The bishop also reported that the decline in the number of Catholic faithful in Europe and Latin America would be discussed, along with “the immense exploitation” of the natural environment and human rights violations. The Synod will take place from October 6 to 27 and deal mainly with ecology, theology and pastoral care, concerns of indigenous peoples, and human rights.
He accuses the Catholic Church of having a "Eurocentric structure" as opposed to that of the Latin American Church
They plan to change the Church’s “Eurocentric structure” so that local churches and clergy in Latin America become increasingly independent. Meanwhile, reflecting on the lack of priests in Europe and Latin America, the bishop of Essen stated that local churches are already run mainly by women religious. “The face of the local church is female,” he said.
Although Bishop Overbeck did not mention the issue, the website of the German bishops suggested that the question of married priests will also be discussed.
Bishop Overbeck is also known for wanting to change Catholic teaching on homosexuality. He has called for a “de-pathologization” of this practice to avoid an “intellectual marginalization of the Catholic moral teaching.” In other words, the bishop of Essen condemns all traditional Catholic morality in this matter while claiming that it leads to the “intellectual marginalization of the Catholic moral teaching.”
This strange symbiosis between the new evangelization advocated by the Amazon Synod, catastrophic environmentalism, defense of homosexuality, ordination of married men, “female face” of the Latin American Church, “Eurocentric Church,” and combat against the (divinely instituted) hierarchical character of the Church forms one single whole and a new doctrine destined to totally disfigure the Bride of Christ.
This is a ‘disalienated, desacralized and egalitarian church placed at the service of the Fourth Revolution.
We strongly recommend to our readers to Prof. Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira’s studies and books (see footnotes), which are especially relevant facing this planned disfigurement of Holy Church.
